Dominic Smith makes his full debut on Monog Records with the superb Dig Deep EP
Irish DJ and producer Dominic Smith makes his full debut on Monog Records with the superb Dig Deep EP. Dominic is no stranger to these shores having delivered a fantastic remix on Luis Bravo’s Switch Dance at the start of 2015. We know this guy loves his house music and how he dissects genres and moulds them into cutting edge grooves. Since grasping the inner workings of Ableton he has been relentless in his approach to producing as he leaves no stone unturned. It is this attention to detail that has gained the attention of various labels including Monog, we have no doubt there will be much more from this guy in the future so stay tuned.
Dig Deep intros with a wonderful punchy kick and a warm fading bass note alongside some super crispy hats and snappy claps. The track already oozes deep tech vibes that will definitely have asses shaking with its infectious rhythms. Cool vocals come through and are joined by a deep reverberating bassline that gets the groove going into overdrive. Throughout the track we are treated to bouts of sharp stabs that cut through the lower frequencies with ease and leave us wanting more. On the break the sound descends into a smooth and sultry affair with those beautiful chords and some very cool spoken vocals that spew out an urbanised theme before we get thrust right back into the main groove. Top notch stuff yet again from this guy, not to be missed.
Dominic teams up with Irish DJ and producer Sonny Andreucetti aka Sonny Alsalmo to deliver the sublime Don’t Stay In. Sonny is known for being a hard working producer, often pending long hours in his home studio. He has a passion for various styles including dubstep and tech house, and hi mixes can be heard on various online radio shows each month. Well worth keeping an eye on this one for the future. The track intros with classic thumping kick and bright open hat combi. Sharp vocal one shots break through alongside some very cool rising chords and glistening synths. A proper deep and throbbing bass takes over the sound as the layers build forming a solid rhythmic flow. The break throws up another super cool vocal that adds a ton of character to the sound as well as bringing a raw, urban element. A superb slice of deep tech that will be a welcome addition in any set no doubt.

Monogamy is the state of having only one sexual partner at any one time. The word monogamy comes from the Greek word monos, which means one or alone, and the Greek word gamos, which means marriage or union. In many cases, the word “monogamy” is used to specifically refer to marital monogamy. Now let’s think about music.
